Andrea E. Friedman Named Among Top 10 Women IP Lawyers in Illinois

Chicago (April 13, 2015) — Law Bulletin Publishing Company and its Leading Lawyers division today announced that Andrea E. Friedman of Friedman Law Group Ltd. was named by her peers one of the Top 10 Women Intellectual Property Lawyers in Illinois.

The honor, published in the most recent edition of Leading Lawyers Magazine, comes in her 11th year as a Leading Lawyer. The number of Leading Lawyers cannot exceed 5 percent of a state’s registered attorneys, making the peer-voted selection a rare distinction for practicing attorneys.

“Andrea Friedman is known throughout the practice and throughout the state as a top-notch professional in not only marketing law, but in such diverse fields as intellectual property, advertising, media, sports and arts law,” said Scott Anderson, director of Leading Lawyers and publisher of Leading Lawyers Magazine. “The fact her peers selected her one of the top 10 in her field is a recognition of that skill and reputation.”

Law Bulletin Publishing Company, through its Leading Lawyers division, conducted extensive statewide surveys of lawyers asking: “If you couldn’t take a case in your area of law, to whom would you refer a family member or friend?” Only those lawyers who were most often recommended by their peers in one of 100 areas of law and approved by the Leading Lawyers’ advisory board achieved the distinction of being a Leading Lawyer. Lawyers could not nominate themselves or any lawyers at their own firm. Also, the rigorous research methodology eliminated the possibility of lawyers being selected through a popularity contest.
